've heard this kind of talk before. but america is a different country. voters are rejecting 40 years of gop scare tactics. voters are supporting the obama administration's move to end severe mandatory sentences for low-level nonviolent drug offenders. of course, over at fox, they don't get it. >> they're not pot smokers. they're not pill poppers. >> wait a second. 50%. but the thing, what if the kid has a drug problem? >> then you get the kid to rehab or lock him in the basement or do what you have to do. that's what parents do. >> who thinks that one of these elderly people who have been in prison for a mandatory minimum sentence, that they're going to get out and they're not going to be on public assistance? of course they are. >> so we should keep people in prison to keep them off public aid? we should just lock up people with drug problems. this kind of demonizing and fearmongering is really nothing new for the right. it goes all the way back to president richard nixon. >> america's public enemy number one in the united states is drug abuse. in order to fight and defeat this enemy, it i

supports the nsa surveillance program. he says the program itself works in protecting america from terrorism and has what he calls a 99.99% batting average in being compliant. >> this whole tone of snooping and spying that we use i think it's horrible, it's a distortion and a smear and a slander of good patriotic americans. >> reporter: senator rand paul, by the way, says the constitutionality of the nsa program must be evaluated. steve? >> thank you very much. peter king went directly at rand paul, said basically he's lying about the program. and he's just breathless in defending it as michael hayden. where is the president? he doesn't go to pat for this. he's analyzing this and it's his program. from michael hayden he says "the washington post" publishes this story. look at the numbers. there's been 115 incidents, incorrectly entered. mistakes made. none intentional. so that's out of 61 million inquiries a compliance rate of 99.998. look beyond the numbers and the headlines. >> right. michael hayden has and i temple in the "usa today" today where he talks in an op-ed just trust u

alone america. obama, call him a liberal or what you want but he was not on the fringe. he was down the plate of the democratic party. you have guys who are both not ready and also taking really wacko bird positions to -- >> at the same time, a lot of that has to do with the fact where you live and what your views are. there are a lot of people in middle america that don't see ted cruz or rand paul or marco rubio out of the mainstream. a lot of people. as many people don't think they are, as people don't think barack obama is. i mean barack obama -- >> they're not even in the mainstream of the republican party. barack obama was in the mainstream of the democratic party. he may have been inexperienced. >> when these guys came in 2010 they are in the mainstream of the republican party. look at the fact that in 2010 it's not like there were a couple people that snuck. >> office. republicans won the largest legislative landslide on the state and national level i think probably in the 20 -- in a century. it was a remarkable victory for them. the problem that some of them don't understand
. >>> joining me now is john watch -- walsh. host of america's most wanted. fascinating interview, painting a very different picture, sort of kind of persona that we seem to be dealing with with a mass killer and kidnapper. what do you make of it? >> well, he's certainly hoping it isn't his friend and we live in such a society that both you and i would say this man is accused of kidnapping this girl and murdering her mother and probably her brother. we should stay accused by the fbi and police say he is pedophile that kidnapped a 16-year-old girl and the main suspect in the murder e of her mother and the murder of her 8-year-old brother, although they haven't determined those are his remains yet. so it seems the law enforcement agencies and the state of california, which issued the amber alert think he's the number one suspect. let's not forget about jerry sandusky who was sodomizing an 11-year-old boy in the locker room and nobody could believe it was jerry sandusky. >> right. >> ariel castro who kept three girls in a house for ten years, his little 14-year-old daughter was gina dee jesus
, but a lot would have to go to private institutions, to go to bank of america who could jack up the price or interests a lot higher than government, that creates another problem. neil: you do see that -- you keep feeding the beast. >> you put a ceiling on what government can give you is fine, but have to go to private lenders. i would have had to go to bank of america for example or whatever it was. you know because i'm ancient, they did not exist. neil: then i am -- scotty, we have to do something we can recognize risk of thoseho need the aid not getting aid, but bigger risk no one gets aid because it will be priced out. >> not like the republicans are against education, but what is the real hype crease, barack obama is champions students supposedly, he will make $50 billion in profit off of the interest from the loans, ise doing this in best interest of students, if we gave government grants to make it equal to have status quo is fine, but this administration is using it to make a profit to make up for other losses. >> you are suggests that other presidents did not have pehl grants orel
of america's most vocal critics. we shouldn't forget the difference between the ability of our government to collect information online under strict guidelines and for narrow purposes than the willingness of some other governments to throw their own citizens in prison for what they say online. >> stephanie: talking to you, putin. >> we're not there. >> stephanie: right.

, is the drug cartels and the violent side of is a demand for drugs in the united states of america. whether they have a submarine, like i have seen in colombia. it is a violent place when you have armed members bringing drugs across the border into our country. i do not excuse any action that .ook place but to somehow think it is not dangerous when cartel members are bringing drugs up to this country is not an adequate reading of the situation on the border, and i visit it all the time. said, i think the answer to our border control is technology. you have a point about additional border patrol. one of the things we need more of is customs people so we can .xpedite traffic back and forth there are some of us here old enough to remember we used to be able to walk across and have and walkedgales back. think about doing that today. you bring up problems on the border, and with this surveillance capability, we will people back,keep and then we will be able to send these teams out. finally, the coyotes. we know these coyotes are the worst scum of the earth people, and they are bringing people it

is it all of a sudden america's fault? and i couldn't agree more with the previous callers that say we should not give any more money to any nation that behaves this way. detroit is bankrupt. sacramento, california, is bankrupt. we have huge, huge problems over here as far as infrastructure. i think we should take care of our own. i'm a first generation american and i can tell you, these countries, we give money -- they don't share our values, they don't share our beliefs, they don't have the same respect for human life that we do. we have absolutely no business giving them our money. i thank you very much. hubie: thank you, shane. from maryland. our next caller from ports myth, howe. good morning. caller: good morning. i enjoy your program here. just a quick comment about what's going on in egypt. people don't realize that they it -- america a pretty much put the president there before, and they lived under, generally, what america -- with freedom. now they have this muslim brotherhood guy who came in here and tried to slowly bring back shari'a law to this country. they'll people are
the safest big city in america. and i'm happy to say we are on pace for another record low of shootings and homicides this year. because our police officers follow the law and follow the crime. they fight crime wherever crime is occurring and at the don't worry if their work doesn't match-up to a census chart. >> governor, this is a big part of his legacy. he doesn't want to leave office with the record he has intact and all of a sudden be remembered as the guy implementing stop and frisk on an unconstitutional basis >> he should be remembered to the man who helped reduce violent crime to historic levels in this city. we have an seen a decline across the country but haven't seen anything like the dramatic decline in new york city. you can trash new york city where we will very policing including stop and frisk with chicago where the rate of minority murders in that city is just unacceptable. share lynn is also right when you look at the sticks. look at the statistics of stop and frisk. it reflects basicallity percentages of those hose ultimately are arrested and charged with crimes in t
of the united states of america siding with the generals. we have no credibility. we do have influence, but when you don't use that influence, then you do not have that influence. we could be cutting off the aid, the spare parts and maintenance of these military equipment that we've given the egyptians is important to their capabilities. >> wait -- >> tourism, economic assistance, business, the imf loan. there are many areas where we could exercise influence over the generals and we're not doing any of it and we're not sticking with our values. >> and yet when you argued earlier, trying as you say to give the military leaders a chance, you argued that to cut off u.s. aid to egypt might harm israel. others also add that once you cut off aid, you've lost any kind of leverage. there is nothing after you've cut u.s. aid. >> well, again, we thought that at that particular time that it was not the right thing to do because we wanted to give them an opportunity to get back on the path to democracy. obviously that's not the case. as i say, our interests, our values, there are consequences of failure --
into this sort of nonsense, he ends up being the image that the rest of america gets about republicans. and people like lamar alexander and everybody else who is complaining about all of this, they are offering him this vacuum because they are unwilling to anger the folks that are going to vote in the primary by going out and offering some leadership instead, they're letting cruz become their voice to get the base fired up which is good for cruz, but as everybody has suggested, it just isn't good for the republican party and the general election. when you start this stuff about blinking, you end up with confrontation that leaves the country in a standoff mess. >> you're talking about a guy actually running for president and using this language and actually asking the american people i guess implicitly to give him the nuclear football. give him the buttons, give him the codes. a guy like that who talks and thinks like this in these cold war terms given the power to blow us up. i mean, at one point do you separate just good rhetoric and rabble-rousing with possibly governing this country

, the boston southy turned crime boss turned fbi informant turned man on the run as one of america's most wanted. nbc's kristen dahlgren is outside the federal courthouse in boston. kristen, this was a 32-count indictment. break down the findings for us. some of the murders he was found guilty of, some of them he was not. >> reporter: yeah, these -- they all fell sort of under this racketeering charge, which is a catch all. there were 19 murders. he was found guilty of committing or being co-conspirator in 11 of them. this all during the time when he was reported to be an fbi informant. we're now hearing outside of the courthouse from some of the victims' families. we heard from pat donahue. her husband michael was one of the murders that was proven in this case. she says today she really feels like she got justice. we also heard from steven davis. he's been very vocal through all of this. his sister debra was murdered, but that was the one charge that was found no finding. so it wasn't proven or not proven. the jury just couldn't reach a finding on that. so he was understandably disappoi
to announce today that the justice department will take a series of significant actions to recalibrate america's federal criminal justice system. we will start by fundamentally rethinking the notion of mandatorily minimum sentences for drug related crimes. >> declaring mandatory minimums both ineffective and unsustainable, he announced the justice department will order prosecutors to omit listing quantities of illegal substances in indictments for low level drug cases. side stepping federal laws that impose strict mandatory minimums. it's one of several steps aimed at curbing overcrowding, massive taxpayer spending and gross disparities within the criminal justice system. let's get right to our panel now. with us from washington is nia-malika henderson and in los angelesing is strategist professor bob shrum, columnist for the daily beast and contributing professor at nyu. nia-malika, he said the moral cost of mass encars ration are impossible to calculate. but they do add up. $80 billion we've he spent to incarcerate prisoners in 2010 alone, 47% of those imprisoned for drug-related crimes. and
that the election for that senate seat is going to be held in october? on a wednesday. here in america, we generally hold big statewide, big federal elections on tuesdays in november. wednesday in october? and, in fact, new jersey already has a previously scheduled big statewide election on a tuesday this november. a big normal election on a big normal election day. tuesday in november. but the u.s. senate seat election between cory booker and the former mayor is going to be held on a different day, less than three weeks before the normal election day on a wednesday. why? because on that tuesday in november, real election day, new jersey governors chris christie, is on the ballot. he's running for re-election as new jersey governor, and as he is making the state of new jersey spend an extra $12 million to hold a whole separate election for this senate seat, less than three weeks before there's going to be an election anyway. amazing. presumably he is going this because he does not want to be on the same ballot with a democrat as popular as cory booker. there is basically no one in politics who think
why that's happening. because nobody in america would -- dan, good luck. we will see you soon. if it's way too early, it's "morning joe." stick around. the fix is next. >>> day of rage. egypt's unrest leads to hundreds of deaths and thousands of injuries prompting president obama to cancel a major military exercise. is there more the u.s. will do to stop the violence? plus, some new names headlining in the hawkeye state talk this weekend. but the spotlight still belongs to the superstars on each side. and another surprise headline on what the nsa is up to. an internal review shows the intel outfit broke its own rule thousands times. good morning from washington. it's friday, august 16th, 2013. and this is "the daily rundown." we're watching developing news out of egypt. the country bracing for more bloodshed today. tens of thousands of muslim brotherhood members and their supports are responding to calls for a day of rage. pouring into the streets to protest this week's brutal government crackdown. we're watching crowds demonstrators crossing a bridge through cairo. most likely tryin

because a few months ago when you were asked what's the biggest geopolitical threat facing america, you said russia. not al qaeda. in the 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because the cold war has been over for 20 years. >> white house -- >> boy, that's a cute line. it's just so dead wrong. it's not even funny. and every single country that's causing problems right now, whether it's iran, whether it's syria, of course we've got the snowden issue now, it is russia at the center of it and russia has now made fools of two presidents, nicole, yours and barack obama. >> right. i mean, look, he's a shirtless thug and he's someone who really has made a fool of this president, who i think earnestly intended to re-set relations but naively thought that was possible. >> can i say, donny twitched when -- >> shirtless? >> look -- >> when the phrase shirtless thug, because -- no, no, willie. >> he did. >> when you said shirtless thug, it was as if donny was walking down like the streets, the mean streets of southampton. >> shirtless. >> that shirtless thug, he said he was go
brothers had gone on a brothers trip to latin america and they had discovered these extremely high quality popsicles. popsicles you think. a financier getting in popsicles? but not as an investor, as an owner of the business. and so he at his kitchen table sleeping on his brother's sofa to conserve money started making these popsicles and selling them at festivals and fairs and things like that. and now he's got a real business. and steve works like one million hours a week. i know there's only 168 hours a week. one of the things about being an entrepreneur, you have to do something you love, something you believe in, and then you've got to commit to it all in. and he is -- i went to his business, and i helped make popsicles recently. >> oh, really? >> yeah. so i could talk to all the employees, find out what it's like. the morale is fantastic and my favorite is banana pudding. the banana pudding pop is so good i can't believe it. they do all fresh ingredient, not my find of price point. guess how much one popsicle costs? >> i'm going to tell you because i have had that, too, and the key l
the way to have action. he didn't need to undermine america's national security to pursue whatever his conscious led him to do. there's a process by which he could have pursued his interest in a way that doesn't undermine the national security of the united states. when we have our sources and methods known by our enemies, we undermine the national security of the united states. i would say it's easy since we have not, thank god, had an attack on american soil since september 11th, to minimize the threat, but it's real. and the terrorists only have to get lucky once. we have to do it right 100% of the time. that's a tough standard. >> and a key member of your committee from california who's chair of the subcommittee dealing with russia seems to have sympathy with edward snowden. this is him yesterday on c-span. >> i thought he was being loyal to the rest of us by letting the american people know that the government was getting out of hand. accepting him for asylum, i think, was not as hostile an act as its being portrayed. >> do you agree with those views on edward snowden and russia?
